Take-off at 0706Z (0906L), landing at 1326Z (1526L) for total duration of 6.3 hours. This was the first Science flight based at Walvis Bay (FYWB), Namibia in support of ORACLES Campaign.

After numerous attempts to reset and resolve the issue, it was decided to gather data without HSRL-2 working, but RTB early to allow time to trouble-shoot issue.
